Steven was fantastic to work with, together we turned the rain to our advantage.

Built in 1885 Scotway house in Glasgow, was originally the drawing offices of DW Henderson Shipbuilder’s.
On the 20th May 2016 it was set on fire. This breaks my heart to see yet another listed building in Glasgow being set on fire deliberately.
I was fortunate that back in 2010 the back door was open. and I went inside to document this historical gem of building, as I knew one say it would be consumed in flames in the future, as many a listed building in Glasgow that are left to rot, always do.
Some of the Iron work that had been stripped out from the internal stairway
The stunning ground floor wood and glass interior.
The dookits up in the Attic/loft
A beautiful old can of McEwan’s Export. I never took anything from inside this building, but left it as is, for the next explorer to enjoy.
I actually sat on the roof for a bit, embracing the Glasgow Clydeside skyline.
Up in the attic / loft there were superb wee paper cut outs glued to the walls, of a golden age that had past.
The sadness of anything metal, or of value had been stripped. You can see the detail of one of the Iron bannisters at the top of the page.
Despite the French styled building, designed by Bruce and Hay Architects being is awful condition even back in 2010. The light in some parts was gorgeous, and absent in other parts.
I hope this building’s shell is rescued, but i fear it was be flattened soon.
It has been more or less demolished now…
I will miss this old friend…

I was fortunate to be hired, to do another photo shoot with the UK’s finest young Parkour athlete Robbie Griffith, at the Clydeside in Glasgow, around 6:30 in the morning.
The early rise allowed us to shoot in the morning light in the quietness.
I used a lower shutter speed to add some motion to the photo, so the viewer could have a sense of motion.
It is photo shoots like this I am happy that I photograph completely in Manual setting, which allow me to have full control of what I want to achieve from the photo, and not letting the camera guess for me.
Robbie is a true professional, he is far capable of higher, more dramatic and complex moves, but allowed me to keep it simple, for this particular fresh and vivid shoot.
I used a mixture of natural back or side light from the Sun with a medium softbox as a fill light.

I was very fortunate to photograph Jim Griffith and Jolade Olusanya’s ascent up Ben Lomond, in Scotland.
Jolade who is also photographer and film-maker from London, had never been up a Scottish mountain before. I decided to focus on Jolade and document his experience
Jolade, who lives in London was use to the flat level, ultra busy environment of the big city. So to escape to fresh open air of the Scottish Highlands was something his mind, body and soul embraced.
The higher we climbed the views just got better and the sense of scale became more apparent and respected.
The more Jolade climbed the colder it became, the visibility drastically being reduced. The air thick in fine water droplets. This is was us walking through the clouds but did not know it, as we thought it was just fog/mist.
Jolade’s dark dreads became almost white, capturing the moisture from the air.
Our thighs at this point were like jelly and mood a little low from the exertion and not being able to see much.
About three quarter’s of the way to the summit, the thick white clouds began to dissipate. A pastel blue sky began to appear the saturation intensified. The light becoming so bright Jolade could not fully open his eyes. It was just like when you wake up first thing in the morning light, but he soon adjusted.
We all kept on walking, with the tones of our voices lifting, bigger smiles and a new energy.
We realised that we were all just above the low cloud line. Taking photos in all directions.
Jolade embracing the mountain fresh air, the view of the clouds beneath him. His legs recovered and standing strong, his mind reflecting on his inner journey.
We kept walking in awe. The Scottish mountains poking through the clouds ahead of us.
As we turned the corner and looked up, We could see Jim sitting at the summit, taking in the views in the background and the large Black Raven just in front of him.
This was Jim’s view…
When Jolade and I arrived Jim had our lunch all prepared, spicy pasta and a vista to die for.
Looking north and seeing such mountains as Ben Vorlich and Ben Nevis poking through the clouds.
Jim at the edge of a large drop, the sense of scale almost over whelming.
Jolade proud yet humbled by over coming his challenge.
